Default Bottled!!!!

I just bottled my first batch.

It's the B3 Pliny. I got about 43 12 oz bottles. There was about 1.5 gallons of gunk at the bottom. My bottling bucket had 4 gallons of beer. Lesson learned next time I will make some more or is there any other way of ensuring there is not so much gunk. I will also filter out the boiled hops next time.

Anyway, I am super happy to reach this milestone and wanted to thank everyone on this board for sharing their valuable advice.

Btw: What do people usually do with the gunk, is it good fertilizer? I am not planning on using it for another batch.

Congrats! Now refrain from drinking too many of them for the first few weeks!

I normally chuck the gunk under my apple or lemon tree. Hasn't killed them yet.

If it is a Pliny clone, that beer is going to take a couple of months to get REALLY good! It is going to be very hard to resist -- just make sure you stash away some of it and try it in the fall!

I used the "gunk" (trub) from my pumpkin ale to fertilize the herb garden last year. It took off like crazy.

Badnaam,

I was reading the posts from the bottom up.
So it is already bottled! Congrats!
Use a hop bag to keep crap out of your bottling bucket.
And give the left over crap to your horse or your hogs.
Or just throw it out the back door.


Luck
